Is that what you mean? Where is the model no?
Expert:  Daniel T. replied 3 years ago.

Hi

Thats just the range of dryer. If you open the door there will be a sticker on the inside and it will start with E-nr.

Hi

.

Ok looking at this that cover is a clip fit.

Get a butter knife or a flat screwdriver and insert it into the top of that cover in each corner and thre will be a clip you push with the screwdriver or knife.

.

Do this and at the same time pull it and it should pull out from the top and lift it out from the bottom.

.

Try that and see what happens.

I have tried it - although it did open three of the flaps snapped off. There were three of them, apparently - and near impossible to locate with the knife- scratched the side as I was doing it as well. :-(

Hi

.

Sorry to hear you had trouble getting it off. But that's the only way you can do these is by the clips at the top.

.
